It is sponsored by Avaya, headquartered in nearby Santa Clara. The stadium features a canopy roof and the steepest-raked seating in Major League Soccer to provide the best possible fan experience. Additionally, the area behind the northeast goal houses the largest outdoor bar in North America, a two-acre fan zone and a double-sided video scoreboard. The suites and club seats are located at field level. The stadium is part of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development.The stadium was constructed privately with no public money provided by the city of San Jose. Additionally, Lewis Wolff, owner of the San Jose Earthquakes, offered to pay for the maintenance of the stadium for a fifty-five-year time span. The team organization initially delayed the completion date to the middle of the 2014 MLS season, but later delayed it again to the 2015 season.

  • Awesome stadium to see a game. The backdrop with the airport and mountains adds to the experience. Unique lawn with huge bar and tons of food truck choices!
  • Stadium is awesome. After party is worth a stay. Good selection of food trucks. Needs more craft brews. Section 118 is worth a stop if you are ready to go hard with the go hards.
  • Love seeing Quakes live. Family friendly, fun open area. Kids can run around and I can get great food truck chow or beer from the nation's largest outdoor bar. Love it.
  • Great sporting venue, not a "bad seat" in the house. Great for Families!! Kids go nuts for the bouncy houses, plenty of open grass area, and the variety of food trucks for any palate!
  • Great venue to catch the SJ Quakes. Easy to get to and parking ($15 or $20) is relatively close. Plenty of food vendors & great atmosphere
